WYBC “I Rise” Student of the Month: April 2019

WYBC “I Rise” Student of the Month: April 2019

94.3 WYBC, New Haven Public Schools, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Carol Birks and Mayor Toni Harp are celebrating this month’s “I Rise” Student of the Month!

Education can and should empower all students to rise up and pursue their dreams. Each month 94.3 WYBC will highlight a student who went the extra mile in pursuit of something extraordinary.

The segment is called “I Rise” because it highlights a student who rises above adversity, tackles a challenge or simply shines. We will recognize these incredible, hard-working young people, not just on the radio, but every day in our homes and in the community.


This Month We Honor:

Denise Ramirez

7th Grade Student at John S. Martinez Magnet School

Denise is in the 7th Grade Honors Student at John S. Martinez Magnet School. Her favorite subjects are math, band, social studies and art. Denise is a member of her school’s marching band as well as the Yale All-City Honors Ensembles and the Yale Morse Summer Music Academy. She hopes to someday attend Law School and keep playing musical instruments while she purses her career.

Job well done Denise!
